What is the OTF?

The Oita Text Forum was founded in August 2009 by 5 scholars in Japan and China. The goals of the OTF are to:

-Provide an open forum where researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds can exchange information and share knowledge of how texts are produced and structured, and;
-Elucidate the process of text generation from social or cognitive or socio-cognitive perspectives.

The OTF defines text as any form of structured semiotic entities, which include:

-Linguistic texts, whether written or spoken
-Paintings, sculptures, and any form of art
-Dance, etc.
-Any combination of these semiotic modes 

Call for Papers:

The Oita Text Forum (OTF) is pleased to invite you to participate in OTF Workshop Round 1.

OTF Workshop Round 1 focuses on three fundamental concepts (or entities) in text generation, i.e., text, function, and context, and reviews the relationships between the three or any two of the three. Specifically, we may explore questions such as:
-What function or functions does one text (or one text type) realise?  
-Does the recognition of functions in texts contribute to our better understanding of the process of text generation?
-What should the relation between text and the context of situation be like?
-What can we say about (the context of) culture in relation to text generation? And how does the former affect the latter?

The OTF welcomes scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds.

You may present a 30-minute long paper (a 20-minute presentation, followed by a 10-minute discussion) or a 60-minute workshop.

Please send a 300-word abstract (if you wish to read a paper) or a 600-word abstract (if you wish to present a workshop) to keizo-nanri at cc.oita-u.ac.jp. Workshops must be interactive and involve the audience, and their abstracts must clearly outline how the workshop will proceed.  The deadline of abstract submission is 31 October 2009.
